  2. The Items and Quantities that are to be received from the Purchase Order are color coded to let you know which stage they are in:
    – Red: Not Received
    – Yellow: Partial Receipt
    – Green: Fully Received per line of the order.
    Select the line of the item you would like to receive and either scan or enter in the count into the Qty Box. Also labels can be printed and you can update the UPC if necessary via the device.

  4. The user would then select Bin Putaway and scan the item to move out of the receiving bin to its Warehouse storage bin location. The scanner can be set to show the best location either by preferred bin as well as show the overstock bins. This is a high-level overview of the purchase order receipt process. Once the items are put away, they are ready to be picked from a Sales Order to fulfill.

Sales Order Pick

  1. The user will first choose Sales Order Picking from the list on the scanner. Then scan the picklist that would be printed out from NetSuite and/or enter the Sales Order number manually. This would bring up the items on the order to pick. The user is then sent to the right bin based on the pick methodology chosen by the company.
  2. The Item lines and quantities that are picked will change green after the user enters in the bin information and quantity to be picked:
    – Red: Not Picked
    – Yellow: Partial Qty Picked
    – Green: Full Quantity Picked
    This will update the item lines on the NetSuite order once the user submits and the pick process is finished.

  3. After picking the order, RF-SMART has workflows to walk the user through the pack and ship states in NetSuite to get the order ready for shipping. This is all based on whether the order is going LTL or Small Package. For Small Package this will sync right in to the integrated label printing in NetSuite to print that label out after the order is marked shipped.

Other features include Advanced Cycle counting, License plating, Bin Transfers, RMA Receiving, WIP & Routing, and countless others that can be setup to work based on your warehouse needs to improve efficiency and visibility throughout your operations.
